Before 1999, to meet the needs of an expanding housing estate of Sembawang, it was necessary to build a new school. The result was Sembawang Secondary School, built on 3.04 hectares of land at the bend of Sembawang Crescent in the midst of new HDB flats and amenities.
The school went through its first nine months without the benefits of full secondary school facilities. Housed temporarily at Woodlands Ring Secondary School while the construction of the new premises was underway, the pioneering secondary batch was eight Secondary 1 classes and seventeen teachers led by the school's first principal, Mrs Tang-Chan Yueh Tarn.
The school campus at 30 Sembawang Crescent. It was officially opened by former Minister of Education, Dr. Tony Tan Keng Yam.
In 2008 the school celebrated its tenth anniversary. The guest of honour Dr Lim Wee Kiak unveiled a sculpture which was erected at the entrance to the foyer.
